CrossOver 9.2

SAINT PAUL, Minn. (October 19, 2010) –Less than a month after Firaxis released its highly anticipated and acclaimed Civilization 5, CodeWeavers, Inc. today announced the release of CrossOver Games 9.2, enabling gamers to play the game on Linux and Mac operating systems.

Based in Saint Paul, Minn., CodeWeavers is a leading developer of software products that turn Mac OS X and Linux into Windows-compatible operating systems. Its CrossOver software allows Windows software to be used on Mac and Linux PCs without the need for a Windows operating system license.

“Civilization 5 is pure turn-based pleasure, and I personally couldn’t wait for it to arrive,” said Jon Parshall, chief operating officer at CodeWeavers. “As soon as we opened it up, we unleashed our programming ninjas to upgrade CrossOver so Linux loyalists and Mac lovers can join in on the good times.

“Current CrossOver subscribers can hit our site for a free 9.2 upgrade. New customers? Welcome aboard!” Parshall added. “Now, if you’ll excuse me, King Bernie Smedley is busily leading the virtuous Smedleyites to a glorious victory over the hated Carthaginians. It’s all part of our ongoing commitment to testing and quality assurance…”

CrossOver Games 9.2 replaces all previous versions of CrossOver. The software is immediately available at

I install windows XP on virtualbox due to have to run windows based program. I used it as guest operating system where the host operating system is used Ubuntu. I need to access the ubuntu folder or vice versa to copy file. After trying some configuration, I find the way how to share the folder.

On host side:
1. System -> Administration -> Samba
2. Used password because it need admin right
3. Adduser at Samba
- Open terminal
- Add linux user
>>useradd jack
>>passwd jack
>>smbpasswd -a jack
4. Add user on samba server configuration
Preferences -> Samba User
5. Change network adapter on virtualbox
Default network adapter is NAT, change it to Host-only Adapter

On guest side.
For sharing folder at windows as usual only click right mouse on folder which want to be shared, and choose sharing folder

Note: due to used Host-only Adapter, could not used internet sharing, but if used NAT it could used internet sharing
